Happy 1st Birthday Anushka!!


My baby turned ONE yesterday. I can't believe a year has gone by. I've been going over all the pictures of this past year and I wish I could go back and relive some of the moments, especially those when she would be so content just to be held close. She has started walking now and dislikes being carried. She has not said a legible word as yet, but talks constantly. I just love hearing her talk animatedly. It's so exciting to watch her grow and yet I want her to stay a baby forever. These are such precious times.
To celebrate her big day, we had a small party with a few close friends. We did order a cake, but I wanted to bake something for my little one too. Anushka is lactose intolerant and a few of our friends eat only eggless cakes, so I baked an Eggless Strawberry Cake for the special day.


The eggless sponge recipe is from Sunita's blog and was delicious. I made two layers and just sandwiched them with dairy free whipped topping mixed with some fresh strawberry puree and a layer of strawberry slices. Topped the cake with just the whipped cream and M&M for color.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the sliced cake, but the birthday girl seemed to enjoy her first cake:)

    Thats a lovely looking cake that you've made for her. Also, I was delighted that Anushka shares her birthday with my son too. He turned five yesterday.

    Lots of love to the little ones.
